    This is a critical item. It's a problem that we shouldn't have to learn to live with. If a "note" is going to have format variability depending on the insertion point, then there should be some clear mechanism for interfacing with it, otherwise it's beyond annoying, it's counter-productive. I don't want to think about all the times I've encountered this nuisance. There should be clearly marked boundaries, containers, blocks that designate the formatting: one for code, one for plain text, one for rich text, etc. which can be intermixed and interweaved in a single document/note. No mystery, no guessing, no invisible boundaries separating formatting. Anything pasted into the block will be automatically converted into that format. I would know exactly what to expect from each block. Each container could even further be customized in preferences, to have a consistent look for code snippets in all my notes, for example. The boundaries can be toggled, similar to turning borders on and off in tables which helps with creation. I know there are tips and workarounds and ways of managing this, but I don't understand why it needs to be an issue when there are definitely things that could be done by the app developers to assist in our editing. It would be to everyone's benefit. I'd expect such sloppiness and naked devices from a general rich text editor, but I expect more from Evernote considering one of its purposes is to aggregate copy of various formats.

     

     

    And perhaps I'm just doing it wrong :-) I mean, perhaps I'm expecting too much from a note unit. Maybe I need to split up my notes more so that the container is the note, rather than expecting containers within that unit to be more cooperative. I might be talking about notes within notes. That would indicate a notebook > sheet > note hierarchy.

    BUG REPORT: When I'm using full-screen Split View, if I'm in Expanded Card View, if I open a note, it displays on that desktop; if I try to drag it to a desktop that isn't in Split View, the note bounces back to the desktop that has EN open in Split View. I would expect to at least be able to drag it anywhere I want. Perhaps it should open in Desktop 1 by default as well. This is with 6.2 beta 4, thanks.

     

    I just tried this and I'm not able to reproduce it.  I have an Apple Cinema display where I've got Evernote in Split view with this forum post as the second view.  I double click on a note in the Expanded view and it pops up.  I then drag it to the second monitor and it blinks but it stays on that monitor.  My second monitor is a retina display laptop monitor.  Can you describe your configuration in more detail.  By the way, a lot of this is controlled by Apple.  I don't think we do much here.      

     

     

    I understand this may be in Apple's court. I am able to reproduce it consistently, but I am not trying to drag it to a second display, rather just to another desktop on the same display -- I drag the note to the edge and wait for the desktops to switch, and release, but the note reverts back to the desktop that has EN open in Full Screen (doesn't have to be Split View). Thanks.


  3. Oops, I've been posting to the beta 2 thread:

     

    Have you used the latest Ulysses Markdown editor? You can use gestures such as swiping left and right, in order to hide and show sidebars on the left and right, including multiple sidebars on the left--swipe once, see one, swipe again, see another. It's tres slick. I think Evernote could be made sexier with a UI like that.

    BUG REPORT: Beta 4 updated flawlessly on iMac; on my MBP it showed the notification about migrating notes, but I had to force-quit when it was obviously finished in order to use the app.

     

    General feedback: When I right-click on a stack and choose "New Notebook" I expect the behavior based on a contextual menu to be that it's created inside the stack, but it's not, I have to move the new notebook manually.

     

    Thanks.

    ...

    I remembered two other parts that I would like along these lines: 

     

    1. The ability to set things off in a box, just as the comments above show up in a box. To visually separate the code (or other quoted text). 

    2. The ability to go back to default formatting after pasting something in. If I paste in formatted text, the text immediately afterwards ends up in the same formatting. I never figured out an easy way to go back to default behavior for remaining text. The best I've been able to do is to insert some blank lines before pasting, to make sure there is at least one existing default formatted line after the paste. 

     

     

     

    I agree that this is annoying. I run into it all the time (particularly when I forget to SHIFT-OPT-CTRL-V to paste with matching formatting), and my work-around is the same: be sure to insert some blank lines following the insertion point. That's not necessarily a "problem" with Evernote, though: nearly every "rich text" editor on the Mac (and other computers) has that same issue.

     

    Here's a hint, though: Mac's respond to certain Emacs-style commands, and CTRL-O is one of these. It "opens new lines" after the insertion point. If you follow CTRL-O with CTRL-V then reposition your cursor after the pasted text (on the new line), you should find the editor set to the original formatting characteristics rather than those of the pasted text.

  7. We just released Evernote for Mac 6.2 Beta 3.  

     

    We have fixes for some of the weird El Capitan issues like the Evernote window not appearing on launch and rotate image not working.  You can check out the forum post at http://bit.ly/1jldMeN.

     

     

    No dedicated thread for beta 3?

    Here's a screenshot -- I'd really like to have the option to display notebooks in the alternate way, this presentation is not optimal for my resolution. Thanks.

     

    In preferences/software update there's a checkbox for "Enable new notebook view..." - uncheck it to go back to the previous style

     

    Thank you, sir!


  9. Just FYI, not a bug report or change request or request for future enhancement, for a change: Evernote in Split View on 10.11.1 (beta 3) is working nicely. The abbreviated sidebar, the responsive toolbar, etc. are all doing fine. It's not as important right now on the 27" Retina iMac; however, I assume (I hope) 3- or 4-pane split is inevitable, which will make the refinements that much more welcome.


  10. The notebooks view on the iMac appears to be missing the toolbar buttons to see the skeuomorphic presentation of notebooks, only seeing the responsive, narrow view. Whereas on the MacBook Pro I am still able to switch to the tiled notebooks format. Both are running Beta 2, I believe.


  11. Generally I like the way things are headed. The new toolbar looks good, responds well, etc. I think the tags look MUCH better rounded--I thought the old squares were an eyesore. Though it does take some getting used to that the tags disappear while editing.

     

    I can't seem to hide "Upgrade Your Team" from the sidebar in Evernote Premium.

     

    I also can't show the list of notebooks in the sidebar. I can show tags, not notebooks. Used to be able to. This is fullscreen in El Capitan GM. I can toggle the selection in the menu, it just doesn't do anything.

     

    There are some rendering problems with the toolbar in the notes list view--see attached screen shot. 

     

    Speaking of that toolbar, I understand some people requested it, but the return of the "All Notes" button is redundant when one can simply click on Notes in the sidebar, I think. And I'm concerned about having too many toolbars. Why not move that entire button group into the main app's toolbar? There's plenty of room up there. I think eliminating that toolbar would make the app look better overall.

     

    I think the "Shortcuts" section of the sidebar should go below the main default group. Or at least let me move it there. Or better yet, why not add Shortcuts to the Notes|Notebooks|Tags as a main item? Then I could toggle the display of a list of shortcuts, that ruler could go away, and clicking on Shortcuts could show me a custom selection of "favorites" in a sense. And you could give the same treatment to Recent Notes. This way presentation and behavior of the sidebar items would be consistent and more intuitive.

  12. Nothing to be sorry about. Just saying. Happening here too. If I read this correctly, they fixed some issues in 6.1.1 but haven't yet addressed the bugs posted here recently. Thanks for confirming it's not just local to my instance. The more reports they get the more likely they are to prioritize the fix, I would venture to guess.


  13. FWIW, 6.1 Direct is working fine for me on public beta 6.

     

    Official support for an OS normally arrives at the same time (or just after) the OS....you knew the risks.....

     

    Nobody said they expect official support, but developer previews serve a purpose, and Evernote Support suggests we report bugs here which are monitored by the development team, since they're concerned about their app breaking on the day of the launch. We're providing the necessary feedback and volunteering our time to help them, there's no call for a "you knew the risks" remark.


  14. I also see "-webkit-standard".

     

    When Evernote is in fullscreen mode, when I switch away and back to it, the transparency effects are inconsistent and clearly there are rendering problems.

     

    I haven't noted any other major or even minor issues.

     

    Are Evernote developers waiting until the official release to fix issues?
